The [[DEFAULT]] firebase app has not been initialized! RN 0.60.3 react-native-firebase 5.5.7

Hello! I know that there are already a lot of issues like this on GitHub, but still, non of them helped me to solve my issue…

I updated react-native from 0.59.9 to 0.60.3. Soooo it means that I have to upgrade and react-native-firebace too to the version that support AndroidX. So, I updated it from 5.2.2 to 5.5.7 and now facing this issue on Android.

If you notice that something else, not connected to firebase, is wrong, let me know, pleaseeeeee

Thank you in advance!

1 possible answer(s) on “The [[DEFAULT]] firebase app has not been initialized! RN 0.60.3 react-native-firebase 5.5.7

  1. it is maybe possible but not easy to avoid using google-services.json. I would not avoid it, I would use it. If you avoid it then you have to all sorts of runtime configuration etc before you touch any RNFB APIs (maybe possible? maybe not – RNFB itself might try to do things during it’s initialization) and that would explain why you receive the error message in this issue

1 possible answer(s) on “The [[DEFAULT]] firebase app has not been initialized! RN 0.60.3 react-native-firebase 5.5.7

  1. it is maybe possible but not easy to avoid using google-services.json. I would not avoid it, I would use it. If you avoid it then you have to all sorts of runtime configuration etc before you touch any RNFB APIs (maybe possible? maybe not – RNFB itself might try to do things during it’s initialization) and that would explain why you receive the error message in this issue

The [[DEFAULT]] firebase app has not been initialized! RN 0.60.3 react-native-firebase 5.5.7

Hello! I know that there are already a lot of issues like this on GitHub, but still, non of them helped me to solve my issue…

I updated react-native from 0.59.9 to 0.60.3. Soooo it means that I have to upgrade and react-native-firebace too to the version that support AndroidX. So, I updated it from 5.2.2 to 5.5.7 and now facing this issue on Android.

If you notice that something else, not connected to firebase, is wrong, let me know, pleaseeeeee

Thank you in advance!

1 possible answer(s) on “The [[DEFAULT]] firebase app has not been initialized! RN 0.60.3 react-native-firebase 5.5.7

  1. it is maybe possible but not easy to avoid using google-services.json. I would not avoid it, I would use it. If you avoid it then you have to all sorts of runtime configuration etc before you touch any RNFB APIs (maybe possible? maybe not – RNFB itself might try to do things during it’s initialization) and that would explain why you receive the error message in this issue
